Ah, Mardi Gras... How I missed you!
Last night I went to one of my favorite parades of all time:
Its an all female Krewe who throws at the crowd mirrors, shoes, purses, comes and other cute girly stuff
They also throw the traditional Mardi Gras bead but with a feminine touch
(The beads are usually shaped in shoes)
The route usually starts Uptown, goes all the way down St. Charles Ave and ends Downtown
We were standing in the heart of Uptown
Most of the floats this year were mocking famous clothing stores and in between the floats you have the middle school or high school bands from the area playing awesome music!
I took a couple of videos and will be posting very soon!
So underneath here you will see some of the "highlights" for last night...
Sorry for the quality- but people just go coo coo for beads!
I can't wait for this weekend! I can't describe my excitement! My sister will be coming in town with a couple of her friends and I can just feel we are going to have a great time*
The main parades will be Saturday and Sunday!!
*mom if you are reading this--don't worry we will be VERY safe :)
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
Happy Mardi Gras!!!
